The Biden administration will now “close the gaps” in the wall on the U.S. border with Mexico.
The construction project will complete parts of a border wall near Yuma, Arizona, that was begun during the Trump administration.
The Department of Homeland Security said in a statement that the work to complete the project near the Morelos Dam will protect and prevent migrants “from getting hurt from slipping down a slope or drowning while walking through a low section of the Colorado River.”
The area is the third busiest crossing for migrants who can easily walk across the river to surrender to border officials.
Biden administration authorizes completion of the Trump-funded U.S.-Mexico border wall in an open area of southern Arizona near Yuma, where four wide gaps make it among the busiest corridors for illegal crossings. https://t.co/XUkmYOggev
